Some Other Options to Consider-

We STRONGLY advise anyone going on any pack trip, hikers or anglers to have a method of communication in case of a medical emergency in the backcountry. We don't care if you're with our pack station, another, or on your own, someone needs to know your "exact location" to get you out if necessary. These are just three options to look at. There are several websites to shop and compare prices.  Research your options. If you have allergies please plan ahead.  I like them because they connect to your phones contacts. You can even have a full texting conversation with someone if you need to.  Check this out, consider the plans they have. Thanks. This is just a friendly suggestion. 

The wilderness is the wilderness, practice safety.
